    I am not really sure why, but I think this Bike is very attractive. It may be the low count spokes + disk brakes. One way or another, this is a nice clean design.

    I agree w/ you Rafael, I think it's pretty cool. I think it would look even cooler with road or bullhorn bars,

    For what I know about disc brakes, I would prefer V brakes. They are lighter and as much efficient. the bicycle indeed as a nice and clean design, with 2 S&S coupler would be perfect.

    Hmm, nice bike, but low spoke count?! I follow Sheldon's line on this, i dislike it very much. Nice to see another mini.

    My Tweaked and modded Raleigh Twenty. Lots of pictures and lots of general info on for example a different & Cheap Bottom Bracket solution as well as fork solution.

    disc brakes are not necessary heavier than v brakes.... there are quite a few which hover around the 350 gram mark, complete with everything.... now how much is a v brake set with cables, noodles lever brakes all mounting bolts .....????

    p.s. its not the weight why i prefer disc brakes, its the smooth modulation and low maintenance.
